Tour description

Welcome to Aqaba :)
Hope so far you are having a great time!

Our walk tour will start in front of Macdonals Aqaba gate (the center of Aqaba). 

With me as a local, you will discover in the most entertaining way, Aqaba, its modern history, and culture, as well as some curiosities and facts about local and religion.
We will explore together the story of the city and give you an introduction to Jordan and Aqaba! 
After that, the tour begins with passing the oldest vegetables-food market and tasting some of the local tea with different typical Jordanian food and satisfying your sweet tooth with local cookies.
We will continue through the old market (Al-souk) by walking and talking and tasting some local foods, Jordanian fries, and Arabic oil perfume.

Don't forget to make your belly starve!

Very fun tour. Mo takes you to the little shops and corners of Aqaba old town. The many tastings make all the difference and you experience the local flavours. We were originally 5 but in the end 8 and this was not a problem at all. We were all very happy and absolutely recommend this tour when you visit Aqaba. It is good fun! 🤩
